Attestation of the qualitative level of knowledge includes the professional, objective and standardized assessment of the factual awareness of the relevant subject of the problems and issues of the related science branch and knowledge (discipline), volume and quality of such awareness, and the ability of the subject to manipulate data, analyze it and make quick conclusions from the process of its comparison.

2. exposure of grounds and abilities of the relevant person to acquire new additional knowledge and skills;
3. exposure of grounds and abilities of the relevant person to execute efficient research and other analytical activities.

Attestation of professional qualification of the specialist involves the expert assessment of volume, level and quality of knowledge and skills of the specialist upon the criteria of their sufficiency, necessity and completeness for the efficient fulfillment of labor activities and successful enhancement of the specialist’s qualification. 

Attestation of the results of intellectual and creative activity involves the expert assessment of the research, its innovativeness, efficiency, orientation on resolving the pressing problems of modern science, the demand for researches and practical applicability of their results in various areas of public life.

The IASHE fulfills the attestation upon requests of the interested persons.

Attestation may be initiated directly by subjects - carriers of knowledge and skills which are to be certified, and also by interested third parties - potential or factual partners, employees or contractors of such entities. If a third party initiates an attestation, the procedure can be implemented only with the consent of the subject (carrier of knowledge and skills which are to be certified).

Certification is implemented by an authorized expert group through the following types of assessment procedures:
